Sea Turtles Travel For People Training

Have you wondered what the sea turtle hospitals do when they run out of room for more patients, or where the turtles go when their injuries prevent them from being released back into the wild? Well, one idea is to send them off to do 'people training'. Being sent as an ambassador for your species is quite an honor.

This honor has been bestowed upon a few sea turtles that have been sent to Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration, Mystic, CT, where they will help educate visitors about the plight of sea turtles and how they can help.

Read an article about some new classes available at Mystic and about the creatures that will be assisting.

Interesting to know. We could all probably profit from such training.
